Aaron Wherry on why the House of Commons is a sham

  1. Aaron, you are like a young Andrew Coyne without the privileged upbringing and family connections.

  3. You have to get a better still shot for this video, Aaron, you look really pale.

    Either that, or you really have to get out of the House of Commons and reacquaint yourself with the sun.

    And I reiterate my absolute love of your HoC Shamwow article. One of the best pieces of writing I've read in quite sometime. Ranks right up there with Wells and Geddes treatise on Harper from a few weeks back.

  10. No reason for anyone to actually go to the HOC any more. Why not just do the whole thing using social networks?

  12. What Liberals & Conservatives Generally Do in Certain Situations – REAL TRUTH!
    If a conservative doesn't like guns, he doesn't buy one.
    If a liberal doesn't like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.

    If a conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn't` eat meat.
    If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.

    If a conservative sees a foreign threat, he thinks about how to defeat his enemy.
    If a liberal sees a foreign threat, he wonders how to surrender gracefully and still look good.

    If a conservative reads this, he'll forward it so his friends can have a good laugh.
    A liberal will delete it because he's "offended".

    Two liberal politicians are having lunch together; all of a sudden one stands up and shouts, "You're lying,” and the other politician responses with, "I know but just hear me out."

  14. Sweet! I've got one more to add to the list:

    If a liberal doesn't like same-sex marriage, he doesn't enter one.
    If a conservative doesn't like same-sex marriage, he wants all same-sex marriages outlawed.

  15. A bit hyperbolic, Calgarian, but redolent with truths. Why don't you comment on some of the Harper-hating articles and comments in the Mope and Wail? Have a look at the current one by Lawrence Marting and you'll see what I mean.
